THE JOURNEY

Just like the literary journey that we use to know, everyone in life is embarking on one journey or the other. But its unfortunate that most people find themselves in an undesired destination at the end.


In career, some wanted a profession, but they landed in another profession eventually.
Just as a lawyer wannabe becomes a government teacher or a medical doctor wannabe becomes a chemistry teacher, e.t.c

In marriage, some wanted monogamy but they finally settled for polygamy.

The most crucial one is that, everybody wants to be rich and successful but few people become that at the end.

The reason for this is not far fetched.
To every journey, there's the location and there's the destination. Where you are at the moment is your location and where you are going is your destination. To get to your destination, it requires you to know the address and have the transport fare, if one is missing you may land in another location or may not leave where you are. The address and the transport fares are what it takes to reach your destination.

This analogy with the literary journey is very through and valid.
In life, we don't get what we deserve, we only get what we demand. And what we demanded is what we are ready to pay its price.
To get anything in life, we need to know what we want and be equally ready to pay the price in getting it.
To arrive anywhere too, we need to fully know our destination and be ready to pay the price in getting there.

He who wants to be successful must fully know what success is really all about and then be ready to pay the price of becoming one or else he would become something else
